Interesting and entertaining. Nurse Meredith seems at times too good to be true in the care and welfare of her patients which of course come first. The abuse she encounters at times from the parents of these patients and the conditions she has had to endure in order to take care of these children would make another person quit right on the spot which only proves Meredith's first and only concern is for the patient at all cost.
An excellent insight into a profession that most people probably take for granted, until they need these services… or until they read this book. The author takes us into her unique world where she shows caring, compassion, and the tenacity that is needed to perform her job, always in the best interest of her patient. A wonderful read that is both informative and entertaining.
